Conference to focus on innovations for nonprofits

In a changing funding market, nonprofit leaders must make innovation a cultural norm, replacing outdated habits with new ideas and measurable action plans, according to BizTimes columnist and business strategist Christine McMahon.

McMahon will share her insights for leaders of nonprofit organizations at “Transform the Agenda: Creating an Innovative Culture at Your Nonprofit,” a conference presented by the Milwaukee Center for Independence and the Nonprofit Center of Milwaukee.

The conference will be held Tuesday, Jan. 29, from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m., at the MCFI Conference Center, Harry & Jeanette Weinberg Building, 2020 W. Wells St., Milwaukee.

The conference also will include a panel discussion by nonprofit innovators, including: Sister Edna Lonergan, president, St. Ann Center for Intergenerational Care; Jacqueline Ward, managing director, North Avenue Fond du Lac Marketplace BID 32; and Gerianne Prom, vice president, MCFI.
